Recap by phillip woo

Good Companion handed up to Regency Honey at the 700m after leading from a wide gate, reclaimed the front 200m out and just held off Sight Seeing by a whisker with the allimportant claim of Matthew Poon Ming-fai in play after a positive run last Wednesday. He's likely going to find the opposition too smart in Class Three despite light weights. Sight Seeing came on well after settling midfield from a tricky gate to just miss. He came on from a positive run on opening day at Sha Tin and should be winning shortly over this Valley trip. Favourite London City was forced to cover ground coming to the final bend by the winner after chasing the leaders and kept on well down the outside. He continues his positive form following a stable change but might require a claimer's allowance if he were to ring up another win. Our Hero only plodded following a box-seat run. He's a robust type that requires racing to get him racing fit.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (30) - CHICAGO HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

TRAVEL SUCCESSOR was withdrawn on 12.9.17 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore).

Before being allowed to race again, TRAVEL SUCCESSOR will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

On arrival at the barriers, it was noted that OUR HERO had cast its left front plate.

After being replated, OUR HERO was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

REGENCY HONEY shifted in and brushed SIGHT SEEING on jumping.

SMART SALUTE and LONDON CITY bumped at the start.

A short distance later, SMART SALUTE lost ground when crowded for room between LONDON CITY and LOVE CHUNGHWA (M L Yeung) which shifted in.

M L Yeung was advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, LOVE CHUNGHWA was steadied away from the heels of LONDON CITY which shifted out.

Making the first turn near the 1000 Metres, REGENCY HONEY was left racing very wide and had to be ridden along for some distance to obtain a position closer the rail.

Then in the Straight, REGENCY HONEY gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of REGENCY HONEY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the 1000 Metres, OUR HERO was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GOOD COMPANION.

Approaching the 500 Metres, GOOD COMPANION and LONDON CITY raced tight as GOOD COMPANION shifted out from behind REGENCY HONEY and LONDON CITY was ridden along in an attempt to prevent GOOD COMPANION from shifting out.

Close to the finishing line, THE SHOW raced in restricted room inside OUR HERO and as a consequence was not able to be ridden out all the way to the end of the race.

J Moreira, the rider of REGENCY HONEY, was fined the sum of $10,000 for breaching Stewards' Instruction 22 of the Rules of Racing in that when proceeding to the barriers on REGENCY HONEY, he used his whip in an inappropriate manner.

LONDON CITY, GOOD COMPANION and SIGHT SEEING were sent for sampling.
